Buccaneers Coaching Search: Tampa Bay To Interview Tom Clements, According To Report

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will interview Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements for their head-coaching vacancy, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN. Clements is the second member of Green Bay's coaching staff the Bucs will interview for the job, joining offensive coordinator Joe Philbin.

As Bucs Nation notes, Clements has guided quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers, Elvis Grbac, and Kordell Stewart to Pro Bowl appearances. In addition, Clements has helped develop Matt Flynn into a solid backup behind Rodgers: in 34 career games, Flynn has completed 62.1 percent of his passes and thrown for nine touchdowns to just six interceptions.

Clements began his coaching career as the New Orleans Saints' quarterbacks coach in 1997. He went on to hold the same position with the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers before taking over as the Buffalo Bills' offensive coordinator in 2004. Following his dismissal, he landed with Green Bay. He has no head-coaching experience at any level.
